Bastard Grave to release new album via Pulverised Records: “With their bewitching and elegant sense of absolute rotten Death Metal…”

Pulverised Records proudly announces the third full-length release of Swedish Deathers Bastard Grave! ‘Vortex Of Disgust’ will be unleashed on March 10th 2023.

With their bewitching and elegant sense of absolute rotten Death Metal, “Vortex Of Disgust” is remarkably the band’s zenith; shaping the old form of tried-and-true Scandinavian Death Metal and coalescing into an unmerciful clobber of swamp-soaked riffs truly unique to Bastard Grave.

The album was recorded by the band themselves with the exception of drums recording handled by Ulf Blomberg at The End Studios (Exhale, Crawl, Age Of Woe, Inevitable End, etc). The mixing and mastering was overseen and helmed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studio (Autopsy, Chaotian, High On Fire, Atrament, etc), and the cover artwork was illustrated by German artist Thomas ”Necromaniac” Westphal (Cryptic Brood, Morbific, Deserted Fear, etc). The tracklist contains titles as ‘Sunder The Earth’, ‘Consumed And Forgotten’ and ‘Eternal Decomposition’.

We desecribed the last effort of Bastard Grave, the split with Graveyard Ghoul, as: “A sort of Death Metal that has a certain Swedish edge to it, but doesn’t come as the next Entombed stand-in. Instead Bastard Grave blends in some classic Dutch Death Metal and a even a bit of early British Death Metal too, making it appealing to fans of either Sinister, Benediction or Grave – but most likely, these are the same people anyway.”
